2. David Warner’s dismissal against RCB in IPL 2020
For a few years now the IPL which perhaps offers everything world-class in its conduct has faced dreadful scrutiny for its poor quality of umpiring. The incident had occurred in a pivotal eliminator when SRH were chasing a reasonable target of 132 set by Virat Kohli’s men.
It was Mohammad Siraj’s delivery which distinctly pierced into David Warner and finished itself on to the keeper De Villiers hands. However while on its way the ball looked to have touched something either Warner’s glove or his trousers whose indication wasn’t utterly clear. Although, the on-filed umpire did gave it not out but a DRS review did bring the third umpire’s verdict into this.
Undeniably, with every possible angle being watched the dismissal didn’t surmount enough conclusive evidence in terms of giving David Warner out. But the third umpire Virendra Sharma did overturn the on-field umpire’s decision by adjudging David Warner out. A lot of former cricketers after this incident took a big jibe when it came to the onslaught of umpiring errors during IPL.
